Whoa.

That all came out a little wrong. I didn't mean for it to all be about pregnant women, as I've just been noticing it all around. The examples I was able to use were simply the ones I could use anonymously, can't get too finger pointy around here. I guess it just overwhelmed me yesterday. I was just prompted with another one of those "I have a hangnail, do you think I should go to labor and delivery?" questions and it all came out about the preggos.

I have my '36 week' appointment today which in numbers is u/s #23, NST#13 and OB visit #10. I don't know why I keep track of the numbers, I guess it just seems so outrageous to have so many.

It just started snowing and it's a balmy 31 degrees. Such a warm spell after our high of 17 the other day. Looks like I should get out a mini skirt and bikini top. :) heh. Could you imagine how ridiculous I would look, even if it was freaking hot outside?

Not much else to say at the moment. Ohhhh... a big ~congratulations~ to Miss Denise who gave birth to Apple and Banana this morning! Her husband and mom pretty much blogged the whole thing, so it was cool.

I leave you with a question ... if you could clone yourself to have as your baby, would you?

Oooh No! Cloning is freakish as it is, no need to have two of me, lol.
You'd probably still look amazing in that Bikini right now, you skinny ass prego : )

I don't think I would, I find that kinda of weird.

I wouldn't want to clone myself in a million years. :-)

I did clone myself - she looks JUST LIKE ME. Which really irritates my husband. You see, he's a hottie, while I am merely cute. When I told him that we had particularly strong genes in my family, he scoffed. So, I have a little clone. But I cloned my appearance only...the personality is totally my husband.

But, I wouldn't want her to have my personality too - or her father's. I'd rather she be as sunny and friendly and happy as my mother-in-law. We may yet get lucky on that score.

I was a good baby, but no way in hell I'd want me as an older child/teenager. Talk about emotional and sensitive...ugh.

Amanda said...

So Nancy...have you every googled "schnarky"? So close to being #1 :-)

To A T said...

No I don't think I would... It's just too weird and I hope the kids Batman and I make are much better than I am.

Sarah R said...

LOL, I had to click to see if they were really named "Apple" and "Banana". :) Congratulations to Denise!

I don't think cloning is for me. I could hardly stand my bitchy teenage years. Don't care to do them again. I already will have my hands full with a house full of little girls!!

No cloning. I'm hoping my kids will somehow miraculousy come out with mine and DHs best qualities and none of our worst... Funny that 31ºF for you is a warm spell. It's in the 30s today here and that is very cold for us! Friday it was in the high 70s. Christmas is supposed to be 70s. So I really could wear a bikini... SCARY!!

Cara said...

Um...I pretty much have one and NO! Being so alike, looking so alike and knowing how she thinks is torture because it also means that I know the kind of expectations she is putting on herself and how shitty it feels when you fall short.

I am trying to be a kind, gentle, flexible mother to counteract her IDENTICAL behaviours to mine as a child. I'll let you know if it works. Chances are she's going to have to search as far and wide as I did for a sense of self, even though I could tell her the future.

It would be an interesting experiment in nature vs. nurture to clone myself. I don't think I'd do it, though. I'm still hoping that baby #2 is another boy because I'm petrified of having a girl.

Carrie said...

I'd totally clone me! I was a good baby, a good child, a great teenager and a darn good adult, if I do say so myself ;)

The only thing I would want my daughter to not have to deal with is the incredible shyness that I grew up with. That held me back a lot.
